LOL@Spooky! Hey, Spook! Gimme a call sometime! Maybe we can slam the phones TOGETHER!!! 8) But yes, it IS all a matter of perspective. As such, I lean towards the action that will offend or upset the fewest people. Maybe that makes me a wuss, but I don't like unnecessary controversy, although I WILL...

I agree with USA_Justice - the confirmation click after selecting a bid should be enough. There HAVE been several occasions when a bid that I did not intend and that I am certain that I did not click was entered, but I put that down to a glitch in the system, something that could happen to anyone. A...

Etiquette, good taste and sportsmanship seem to sum it all up. Bottom line, think about what YOU would like if YOU were in the other seats, and let that guide your actions. I ALWAYS finish a game with the polite GGA, unless it is an exceptionally good game, in which case I include that in my comment...

Don't mean to beat a dead horse, wildfire_36, but I THINK that you just made my point for me! You say that without resetting, you would "never" get to play in "high-ranked games"... Well, IMHO, playing in those games should be earned. I am not saying that you have not been "up there" before, but so ...

OK, I can see it now!!! "Let's see, I think I'll bid 1 on this hand... No, let's make that 2... No, wait! I think I can make a NIL here!!!... Errr, ok, I think that will be my final bid... No wait!!! I didn't see those three Aces!!! My bid is 7!" Sorry, I really didn't mean to make fun of that sugge...

Regarding the point about nicks that are "permitted", I am assuming that at least SOME of the nicks that I have seen recently have simply not been observed by or reported to the guides or HW staff... I was online late last night and saw several new nicks (I assume they were new since there were only...

Hey there GypsyRoseL!!! 8) Maybe I come across a little more strongly than I intend sometimes, but it is mostly because I find that unless one takes a strong stance, he is largely ignored by many. I do not suggest that the person who resets occassionally for a good reason (your example of the friend...

Meizinnia makes some very good points with the 10 nick limit and limiting the number of resets per year. This would not completely solve the problem, but would go a LONG ways towards making it more acceptable to the many people who play the game and have the same thoughts, but just don't bother to v...

Whoah, Spooky!!! Eeeeeasy big fella!!! Don't let stuff get under your skin so easily! Apparently that is what Kisha did at first, and now it is snowballing! Joy to the world, Peace on Earth, Good Will to ALL Men (and Women! :) ), Deck the Halls, Jingle your Bells, and all that good stuff!!! Cause, r...

Yes, TWL, that is the basic idea! I didn't mention the idea of unrated nicks being placed into permanent provie status until/unless the right to play as rated is purchased, but that would be a good point to add! I would still prefer the general idea of limiting nicks to the point that when you play ...

:) Never thought of THAT particular twist! It WOULD be a useful piece of info to have, and would probably dissuade some peeps from resetting a gazillion times!!! And WHAT objection could ANYONE have to having that little stat included in their profile or next to their name? ;)

EXACTLY my point Spooky! :) All things being fair and with NO resetting, the 15/5 record COULD mean something, but with resetting allowed at will, that record means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! I think you are on to something there Akweth! Limit at least the number of nicks that can be RATED!!! A player ca...

Hey Gypsy! You made some good points in your reply. As for how the Mirrors nick would solve things, at least you would have a nick that you would play all your mirrors games on, and could keep track of just THOSE games there... As for the "punishing" aspect of being sent back to provie, well, I thin...
